I’m a lawyer by trade, a martial artist, and a writer. I grew up in a small Midwestern city, went to a Big 10 school for undergrad (back when it was still only 11-12 schools, so it’s been a little while), and wandered off east for law school. I also have an M.A. in U.S. History, but I’ve done most of my reading since grad school on the Hellenistic Period. I’ve been bouncing around the internet for a long time now, and I still keep in touch with a few people I know from USENET.
Oh, and my wife and I once played Zeetha, Warrior Princess, and Krosp, Emperor of all Cats in a live version of a Girl Genius radio play. That was awesome.
